Brazil issues new agchem labelling rule

Brazil has amended labelling requirements for pesticide products to be enforced by the end of the year. It makes the voluntary use of colour bands indicating toxicology levels on labels compulsory rather than voluntary. In April, the government issued regulation Ato 11 making such labels mandatory from October ( Agrow No 640, p 14). It subsequently revoked this with Ato 22. The generic agrochemical industry association, the Aenda, questioned whether some labels carrying coloured bands and others not would cause confusion among growers. The new regulation, IN No 14, requires manufacturers to add the amendments to labels within 150 days. It was issued on July 27th. “The external product labels always required a coloured band indicating toxicology; now the same must be printed on the labels,” the Ministry of Agriculture says. It adds that IN No 14 was required as IN regulations carry greater force “than Atos”.
